have launched the Advanced Counselling Diploma
Level 4 and this distance learning course is now available for purchase!
The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy define both the terms counselling and psychotherapy as;
"Umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing." (BACP)
At the present time anyone can set themselves up as a counsellor or psychotherapist, without having undergone any formal training or without any requirement to obtain membership of a professional organisation. There is currently no single body to monitor the quality of practice of therapists or to deal with complaints lodged by the clients of counsellors or psychotherapists.
However if you would like to pursue Counselling as a professional career, it is a requirement for registration as a counsellor or psychotherapist that a candidate has obtained a certificate evidencing successful completion of a theoretical course providing a basic knowledge of the main theories in psychotherapy and counselling.
NCC Home Learning's Level 4 Advanced Counselling Diploma course is comprised of twenty modules which are designed to give the learner a good basic knowledge of the main theories underlying the most commonly practiced approaches to counselling and psychotherapy.
Additionally the candidate will need to complete and show evidence of practical work. Depending on the membership body, in order to register as a counsellor or psychotherapist it will be necessary to evidence 400 - 450 hours of practical supervised training. In order to do this the student might consider building up a portfolio evidencing skills and abilities. In addition to diplomas and certificates related to counselling, the student should keep a record of all practical activities undertaken. It is essential that the student obtains a signature at the end of each supervised counselling session.
The Advanced Counselling Diploma discusses this in selected modules, together with suggestions as to how such practical training may be obtained.
With the Advanced Counselling home study course learners will receive a full 12 months tutor support to help guide you successfully through the course and help with any queries you may have along the way. You will also receive personalised feedback on your submitted assignments for each module.
The course is Certificated by National Awarding Body NCFE and on completion of the course learners will receive a Level 4 Advanced Counselling Diploma Certificate from NCFE.
